From the Mayor

As Mayor of the      City of Camden, I    am committed  to    our residents,  our  businesses, our community    stakeholders and  building  upon the  strong public-  private partnerships  which  have  been established. My administration remains dedicated to strengthening our neighborhoods and improving the quality of life for all of our residents.  The City of Camden will ensure that new development and pivotal policy reforms are not mutually exclusive from our holistic revitalization efforts. The progress Camden has made over the past decade should be celebrated; but I also recognize that a lot of work remains. My goal is to take a collaborative approach to revitalization and to ensure the entire Camden community plays a role of the city's renaissance.  That's why I am working along   with  my  colleagues on  the city council,  our  elected  officials, residents, faith leaders,  businesses, and local non-profits.   Camden will continue to work closely with Governor Phil Murphy, Lieutenant Governor Shelia Oliver, the State of New Jersey, and Camden County to leverage resources and maximize Camden 's growth Read more...

From the Executive Director

The City of Camden Redevelopment Agency (CRA) welcomes you to its website. With the visionary leadership of Mayor Victor Carstarphen, the CRA is committed to moving forward the work with the City and its partners to assure that Camden Continues to Rise.  Our goal is the execution of land use redevelopment that results in revenues to the City and jobs for City residents. A particular focus is assisting to implement strategic plans of Camden's anchoring education and healthcare institutions.  We continue to work with the City in land assembly, reuse of underutilized sites, and remediation of commercial, industrial, and open space areas, including those sites for new economic and housing ventures. 

This extraordinary work continues.
